Minnie's Setback

I'm almost at my wit's end with stuff that has happened lately.  Last night Minnie got off the couch as usual to go outside and gave herself a shake and fell down.  Her back legs were nearly paralyzed.   It was my worst fear..she ruptured a disc.

We were awake all night as I was cuddling her and she was scared and in pain.  I called the vet one hour before they opened to be sure a doctor would be available and was in the door when they turned the key.  She had an xray just to be sure there are no tumors causing this.  She will be treated  first with anti-inflammatory medicine and pain killers. I was told it will be a long recovery period if she responds to the treatment.   I so hope she recovers without surgery.  I would not be able to go through another trauma and I need my Minnie.

Oh, Diane, I am sorry to hear about Minnie. Give her a pat on her head, scratch under the chin and a hug from me. Hope she has a speedy recovery.

Oh Diane. I'm so sorry. That is heart-breaking. You surely are having a rough time of it lately. Take good care, my dear.
